About Us

Dr. C. Herschel Gammill, Founding Bishop

The INN at Belden Village was a vision of Dr. C. Herschel Gammill, founder of Cathedral of Life Ministries, Canton, Ohio. He felt called to develop an area ministry that met the spiritual, intellectual and physical needs of youth, adults and seniors. For eleven years he prayed for guidance about how to develop a local campus to meet these needs. When the INN opened in November 2000, his message to the staff at the Inn was “If you are ever in doubt about what to do for a resident consider what you would do if it were your mother and father? Then do exactly that, in love.”
